No metro, trolley buses, ferries on Friday, flight disruption Monday

There will be no services on the Athens metro and trolley bus networks on Friday as workers walk off the job for a 24-hour strike called by unionists to protest a new wave of austerity measures and reforms outlined in a bill being debated in Parliament this week.

Please check with the boat office you got your ticket from about whether boats go or not.

Old Klima

Old Klima is very quiet this time of the year and it stays one of the most beautiful villages on the island.


Seen in Glossa. Santa needs to wash his clothes once in a while, not ?

Blue and bees

Seen on the road to Glossa. I am still amazed that Skopelos produces so many lovely products like honey, olive oil, soap and ointments, candles, herbs, plums, olives, many different cheeses. Did I forget something?

Almost gone

The beach bar in Kastani is slowly being dismantled.

Epiphany 2018

Another glorious day and perfect to jump in the water and grab a cross. As usual we were too early in the harbor (after 22 years I haven’t figured it out yet) but around a quarter to twelve the cross was thrown in the water by the head priest Papa Nikolas who arrived late at the ceremony.

Five guys jumped in the water to grab the cross. Tassos Panajotaras grabbed it first. Good luck Tasso!

A lot of people showed up, most in their best clothes. After the ceremony many went for a coffee or food in the taverna’s that are open.
